Pricey but Decent

Overall a good meal but scimpy on the listed attractions. Six small calimari rings on the featured appitizer, about 8 very small (bay sized) scallops on the main entree. Service was good but not outstanding, ambiance also nice but nothing to write home about. Menu not clearly indicative of any... read more

My husband took me there for my birthday diner. It was a very special mood, we love the food. We ordered a dish with shrimps and one with octopus, everything was perfect! Of course, it is a little bit expensive but for a special ocassion i recomend.

Food is very good (period). But being close to chef is a bitter experience. It seems customers are a burden for him. For two times, we had our table close to the kitchen and could hear all his complaints and unpolite comments about customers orders and waiters requests. I have been to many others restaurants with the same or higher... More

It was a great experience in Joinville. The food was delicious, very original and beautifully presented. The service was professional and quick. If you go to Joinville, you must go to Mamma Lu!

Nice environment, great service and spectacular meal! Take the surprising menu with 5 times or more. If you don't like something, just let the Chef knows and it will not be included.
